brewing in the israeli policy circles about how active should israel be in going after hezbollah convoys, take ought strategic weaponry? israel ills not -- i find that there's no one in israel that i met thinks the united states -- maybe you think this is a big mistake and i'm not talking to the right people, but of all the people i talked to i didn't mean anyone that thought the u.s. would be decisive in syria. they just see the ute as such a mess, they don't see how at it going to be reversed. but at the same time they're concerned that hezbollah and taking whatever weapons they can, either into lebanon or keeping it in a part of syria they deem friendly as a kind of a depot of their open. here there are a lot of israelis who want to start the more pro-active hezbollah conveys there, that -- that convoy, the theys are stunned the russias have given this antiship missile which can hit things in the israeli port before they leave the port. very advanced missiles. and they're wondering where hezbollah is going next. so i it's not reshaping syria. they think that's above their pay grade bu
at them from gaza. they have chemical weapons in syria. they have hezbollah in their north. they have iran trying to build a nuclear weapon to eliminate them. the muslim brotherhood president of egypt. that strikes me as attacking the victim. >> greta: let me talk about the bigger picture issue. is this impossible for an american president? so many tried it, so many secretary of state's tried it and we manage the crisis from time to time, but the peace seems to be so elusive. >> i sometimes have trouble about being too candid about this. there is no peace process. this is nonsense. this is stuff western politicians do to feel good about themselves. hamas is dedicated to the destruction of israel. iran is dedicated to the destruction of israel. there are factions in syria dedicated to the destruction of israel. hezbollah is dedicated to the destruction of israel. muslim brotherhood want to destroy israel and elected the president. >> why did he go now in the second term? didn't seem to give much attention in the first term. why now? >> i have no idea. i think his polling numbers have gone
it if they wanted to. the fact is, the most militant faction the palestinians want to destroy israel, hezbollah and the muslim brotherhood wants to destroy israel and iran wants to destroy israel and western politicians go along with the media and blab about, if only we had a peace process. with whom? >> chris: this week, carl levin the democratic chair of the senate armed services committee joined john mccain in calling for airstrikes to stick out the air force and skud missiles, and senator, what should the president do in sear yeah, given all of the complications, and, how important was this raproachment, and, when it comes to the syrian civil war. >> as the speaker said, the situation in syria has been a mess for a long time and is likely to be a mess for a long time no matter what we do. there are deep religious and ethnic differences and the end game is a civil war that will involve ethnic cleansing and a whole list of other things, why would we want to get ourselves directly in the middle of that? the president has decided with no good option, to pursue the best of that bad options, use
these chemical weapons or transferred these chemical weapons let's say to hezbollah or some other groups, that would presumably result in u.s. military action. i assume that's the threat out there, john. >> well, that is the threat. but then think about what that means. the president has been very clear his national security team has been very clear they don't see any scenarios under which you would put u.s. boots on the ground. would there be some special operations to try to take out additional chemical weapons? certainly the president would say he would want the regime held to justice after the fact. but what do you do in the short term? that is the big question. do you do more to help the opposition or is there a direct u.s. military role? if you take out -- it is very dangerous to take out a chemical weapons site. if you just bomb a chemical weapons site you can disperse the chemicals and do more harm than good. one of the reasons the u.s. has not talked at all about any military options is they range from bad to worse. it would be a tough dilemma for this president if he thought he
for safekeeping. given the fact hezbollah and any number of terrorist organizations are lurking around one corner or the next of any syrian city, who knows what's going on there. there's no guarantee anyone has control over these weapons. the fact of the matter is putting boots on the ground at this point is not going to solve the problem of where these wmd stockpiles go. >> dana, this has an eerie echo of that other despotic leader, saddam hussein, who used chemical weapons against the kurds in 1996. is this the next desperate act of a man who's about to use power? >> well, let's hope not, martin. and particularly on the tenth anniversary of the iraq war, the administration is certainly being very careful not to be responding to what just may be some half-baked reports that my colleagues are picking up that same element of skepticism that this is something real. but obviously as the ambassador was saying, if this is something real, the administration's previous statements have left very little wiggle room and they will have to respond. so certainly the caution upfront is very justified. >> indee
as the country fragments following in the hands of al qaeda, maybe hezbollah and being used against israel in jerusalem and all around this country, shep. >> shepard: ed, it still seems unclear whether either side used chemical weapons. >> that's right. now, the israeli intelligence minister today said he believes that chemical weaponsy were, in fact, used. the republican house intelligence chairman mike rogers back in washington went on cbs news and said he also believes that chemical weapons have been used inside syria in recent days. he added an important caveat. take a listen. >> there is a high probability that a chemical agent was used in aleppo. now, again, i'm an old fbi guy. i like to see forensic evidence. >> now, on top of all of this, there was testimony today in a house committee where the u.s. ambassador to syria basically said that he believes that the syrian regime has now lost control of the border with turkey and iraq and in jordan tonight which the president by the way will be visiting on friday. there is fears about a refugee crisis. refugee spilling out of syria into j
hezbollah what it truly is, a terrorist organization. [cheers and applause] >> was the worlbecause the world cannot tolerate an organization that tock piles rockets to shot at cities and massacres men and women and children in syria right now. the fact that hezbollah's ally the assad regime has stockpiles of chemical weapons only heightens the urgency. we will continue to cooperate closely to guard against that danger. i've made it clear to bashar al-assad and all who follow his orders, we will not tolerate the use of chemical weapons against the syrian people or the transfer of those weapons to terrorists. the world is watching, we will hold you accountable. [applause] >> the syrian people have the right to be freed from the grip of a dictator who would rather kill his own people than relinquish power. [applause] >> assad must go so the serious future can begin. because true stability in syria depends upon establishing a government that is responsible to its people, one that protects all communities within its border while making peace in countries beyond them. these are the things i think
to either have a hamas or hezbollah, related rocket attack, freeze up the process -- if the israelis say any rockets land on our side during this process, all bets are off. then it's too easy for two things to happen, one is a -- a hard line palestinian group to go we don't want the peace process. we want israel to not exist, so all we have to do is fire one rocket, and they are back to zero, or any hard line israeli group letting or tas italy if you want to go false flag or those things the fear of it from the palestinian side is the hard line israelis who don't want the palestinian state to exist have just funded or supplied a rocket to the wrong people so they can guarantee it doesn't move forward. >> caller: okay. i just -- >> hal: you have to stand beyond the violence. even if the violence continues we must continue the negotiations and that hasn't been the case. >> caller: hal, i'm going to say one thing, again, i don't think you can argue. unlike what is going on here with the congress because of the israeli parliamentary system, if the hard line to the ri
conventional weapons. you have these al qaeda groups in trying to get their hands on them. hezbollah trying to get their hands on them. this is a powder keg. it makes what happened in libya with their weapons that spread across the northern africa and the maghreb, in fact i argue that mali was the first victim of weapons that escape out of that, these weapons make libya looks like antique gun show. heather: general jack keanes retired, former four-star general and vice chief of staff of the army, and fox military analyst joins us with more. high probability you heard him say there. do you think chemical weapons are being used in syria by the assad regime or by rebel groups? what do you think? >> i don't know but chairman rogers, highly respected chairman of the intelligence committee has access to information that very select leaders have in this country. so when he is drawing a conclusion it is likely it is probable, i think we have to take him at his word. i believe also before our government would take any action, they would have to actually confirm that chemical weapons were used. heath
hezbollah from lebanon. they need protection against them. i don't think obama can sustain that, congress will come to israel's support but there could be a window of vulnerability that makes it very difficult situation even more difficult. stuart: is that a big enough threat for the israelis not to do what they want to do? >> the israelis want the united states to do it. because we would do a much better job. when it comes down to it, it never depend on anybody else to defend them. stuart: need your comment on this, jordan's king, beware the muslim brotherhood, they are a wolf in sheep's clothing. >> that is what he has said for years. he is a target of the muslim motherhood. stuart: thing we should give the money to the egyptians? >> we are playing a power game inside of egypt. stuart: ambassador john bolton, thank you. $16.7 billion rising our national debt. debt. i was out of control, but it is an immediate threat, immediate problem. i asked that question to a top journalist at the "wall street journal." next. day is gonna be an important day for us. you ready? we wanna be our brother
